Rob, wouldn't you rather be at home watching Antiques Roadshow?
If we were a famous actor and had just found out that our equally famous girlfriend had been cheating on us, we'd probably not want to do anything other than lay at home eating ice cream while wiping our snotty face on the arm of the sofa.
But Robert Pattinson has been doing just the opposite and trawling about New York promoting new movie Cosmopolis, dodging any Kristen Stewart related question, we've all been wondering why he'd do that to himself.
It sounds like he might not have had a choice though. Signed up to promote Cosmopolis before the infamous pics even came out, Rob apparently could've had a bit of trouble getting out of things - even if he had wanted to.
Greenberg Glusker entertainment attorney Ken Basin - who may or may not be a real life relative of Barbie - explained Rob's potential probs during an interview with E!
"For a lower-level actor, a contract will say the actor is obligated as much and whatever publicity the studio tells them to do," Greenberg Glusker entertainment attorney Ken Basin says.
"The only limit is that, if the actor has to travel to do it, the studio will pay for travel and expenses."
"On an A-list level, an actor will have approval over all publicity activity, but there will still be a commitment for a reasonable amount of publicity.
"Very rarely, and I can count these instances on one hand, a super-high-level actor might negotiate to have no obligation to do publicity whatsoever. Whatever publicity they do is out of the goodness of their own hearts.
"Obviously this is pure speculation, but I would guess he's at the level where he can decline specific outlets, but he still would be required to approve reasonable alternatives.
"He'd be given some amount of leeway if he really pushed for it, but I think he's just probably being a trouper."
Well that all sounds very technical and frankly is quite far above our usual intellectual level of saggy pants and undone zippers.
But what do you think about these rumours - could you see it being likely?
